10k: Cop Shocks, Cop Motor: 1967 Ford Custom Police Interceptor
The Ford Custom was a no-frills full sized automobile sold mostly for fleet use, Taxis, Police et cetera. In 1967 the Custom shared the full sized platform with the Galaxie and was one of a few Fords available with the gigantic 428 cubic inch FE V8. This 1967 Ford Custom 2-door was originally a Police Car and is now for sale in St Paul, MN for $10,000 via craigslist. Tip from Andy L.
This Custom started life as a special order Police Interceptor for the Nebraska State Patrol -and we can imagine it was fought over in the dispatch room. Driving this sporty FE V8 powered 2-door would have been much preferred over the run of the mill 4-door 302 Windsor powered mutt.
The 428 FE engine is a big 7.0 liter pushrod V8 that puts out 345 SAE gross horsepower and 462 ft-lbs of torque. It should be great for chasing down suspects on the open highway, but the car it’s installed in probably won’t turn or stop for anything. If this is indeed as rare as the seller claims (one of 1080) it could be a good buy depending on condition.

Looks pretty original, except for those hubcaps which are what they put on Mavericks
Another pet peeve: Sellers that state, "I have no need to sell this car."
Well then, why are you wasting my time posting this ad? Are you serious about selling, or are you just fishing? Sorry, I don't feel like taking the bait.
As for the sellers style. I feel his pain with lowballers but………its a garden variety stripper even with a "Police Interceptor" engine. So price it realistically
Just show me some underside shots and better interior shots, and if all is well I'll pull the engine and tranny and leave it with you, for your other project. Just price it realistically…..
That's a really rare and interesting car. Two door and yet police equipped with 428PI engine from the factory. I think it's worth what he's asking and maybe more. Parting it out would be a big financial error.
THE Alex Vendler! Of the Metro Gnome Vendlers. Thanks for chiming in; I would tend to agree with your sentiments.
Thanks for the support..I get alot of compliments every time I drive the car. Oh, and by the way, I still have the original hupcaps…
I don't see anything "fishing" about noting that this sale is not driven by duress. What is the problem in saying "This is awesome, I have documentation to prove it is what I say it is, and you can bring my asking price, or not!"
I think it looks like an awesome machine and I hear Junior Brown's "Highway Patrol" playing in my head just looking at it…
I love it when a bunch of internet nut swingers who probably don't own shit rip on other peoples cars.
I love it when anonymous internet commenters who don't like what other commenters are saying suggest they must not know what they're talking about.
Larry it looks like you did take the bait. And yet you still are following this and wasting your time.
~ yeah, me too. Anony. take that.
Fair point. Easily rectified.
If this is the 428 police motor I believe its rated at 360 HP
